As I mentioned above I have a question about video file conversion.
However it’s not about one format to another but one resolution to another.
More in detail:
I recently bought a new TV (Full HD 1080) and I connected it to my PC with HDMI cable, I play a movie on my PC and than watch it on TV. Unfortunettly most of the movies are on DVDs, which means they are at much lower resolution.
Sometimes my TV tends to compensate by adding more pixels to the image and expand it to entire screen, but than it looks crapy, sometimes the image remains at original resolution, but is smaller and has more quality.
So I decided to look for some programs that will help me resolve the situation, and I found one video file converter that offers both file and resolution coversion, and I gave it a try, converting a 460p AVI format to 1080 MKV format, it took approx. 4 hours, and resoulting file was from 1 GB now almost 8 GB in size, but I don’t see much of a difference, it’s less crapy but still crapy.
My question is to those of you that have more experience with video files, is it worth it?, to convert the files I mean from lower resolution to higher one, is it worth the time, procesing power and storage space in the end?
And what about the format conversion, is that have to do with quality, if so which one is the best for 1080p resolution and 2 hours long movie?
I have searched the internet for a long time trying to find an answer or explanation about many formats and how is one better than the other in certain situations, but still have no clue on what format to use.
Any answer or help about resizing, converting video files would be much appreciated.
